New Lion Julie

Lion President John Boulton takes one of the latest recruits through the Lionistic investiture ceremony. Lion Julie, commented "that since she began helping Wetherby Lions (as one of Santa’s elves on the Sleigh rounds) she also feels now that she can contribute to something worthwhile - and put something back in to the community she loves being a part of". Julie has enjoyed wide ranging experiences in her career, in various roles across industries as diverse as law, healthcare and technology. She now look to seek out roles within Lionism.

New Lion Peter

Lion President John Boulton takes another new Lion Peter Burr through the Lionistic investiture ceremony. Lion Peter has worked and supported various local organisations and charity groups in our community, recently retiring from being 'Community Champion' for a well known Wetherby supermarket. He has various interests including scuba diving, sailing, following Formula 1 motor racing and is currently researching his family history. One of Peter’s initial projects is to prepare a new event for the Club so look out for it as it could be a real ‘Bull’s Eye’ for everyone to get involved in – more details coming soon on this News Blog.
